Abiud has requested this loan from Juhudi Kilimo of 20,000 KES for breeding rabbits. This loan will help increase the household income for his family through the sale of rabbits. His biggest challenges have been drought and lack of enough animal feed. He hopes that in five years' time, he will have reached the level of national rabbit breeder.
He comments that Juhudi is giving hope to the poor through financial services that they cannot access through the banks.
